Mac Miller‘s charity foundation, The Mac Miller Circles Fund, is closely approaching the million-dollar mark, with $700,000 raised, according to TMZ.
The late rapper’s legacy will continue to live on due in part to his charity foundation. TMZ also reports that around $350,000 came from the October “A Celebration of Life” tribute concert, where artists such as Chance the Rapper, SZA, John Mayer, Anderson .Paak, and others performed at L.A.’s Greek Theatre. The rest of the donations came directly from Mac Miller’s fans, equating to another $350,000.
The money raised will help Pittsburgh’s children, as Mac Miller’s charity aims to provide funds to various arts and education programs for the underprivileged youth in the rapper’s hometown.
Just last month, Mac Miller’s manager Christian Clancy penned a tribute to the late rapper.
